Darlene Young

Going the extra mile is the defining principal in Darlene’s client-centric philosophy in her long-time success as a high-end resort property broker. Her career spans over 30 years in sales, brokerage and executive management, with personal sales volume exceeding one billion dollars. Darlene has first-hand experience in the area’s growth, value and market trends. Over 75% of her clients have worked with her in multiple transactions throughout the years, clearly relying on her insight and extensive expertise when it comes to acquiring properties as well as passing them on.

Engel & Völkers’ exciting approach to global reach motivated Darlene to join the Company’s Sun Valley division as a Partner in 2017. That has proven to be a successful strategy in promoting her high end properties. Darlene entered Real Estate in 1985, became a Partner in Associate Brokers of Sun Valley in 1992, the broker in 2000 and the same year instrumental in selling the Company to Sotheby’s International Realty, a part of the Fortune 100 Cendent Corporation. Eventually franchised and acquired by John Huntsman, Darlene remained in charge of the Sun Valley operations as Executive Vice President and Designated Broker besides being engaged as a business resource within the greater Sotheby’s organization till the end of Huntsman’s ownership in 2016. Joining Engel & Völkers, Europe’s leading real estate brokerage with rapid expansion in the US, became the next step in providing the best business resources for her clients.

Darlene and her family appreciate Sun Valley’s natural beauty, its people, and all it has to offer for a year-round stimulating lifestyle, and she is committed to give back to the community that has given her so much. She is currently a sponsor of the Girls on the Run and has a long history of volunteer activities in Sun Valley’s community organizations.

Darlene is a La Jolla, California native and a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Client Testimonial

Darlene is fantastic to work with. She is extremely responsive and patient. She is very knowledgeable about the SV market and has years of history with other agents, sellers, and even many of the properties themselves. I have recommended her to several friends already and will continue to do so. Darlene understands the balance between understanding what a client is looking for and suggesting options that a client may not have thought of. This is particularly helpful for people who might be looking for a second home in the Sun Valley area and aren't completely familiar with the area. Darlene is also patient and helpful through the negotiating process. She uses data and research to inform negotiations in a very beneficial way. Finally, Darlene has a good sense of humor. She is truly a pleasure to work with.
